Flower ready to make changes for Perth

10:57 am on 11 December 2013

The England cricket coach Andy Flower has promised changes to the team for the third Ashes Test starting in Perth on Friday.

The tourists have been comprehensively beaten in the first two Tests and will lose the series with another defeat.

Flower says they've taken some serious hits but they have a squad full of people who are determined to turn the ship around, and that's what they must do.

He says he's absolutely ready to make tough decisions and there will obviously be changes in Perth.

England are seeking their fourth successive Ashes series victory, a feat not achieved since 1890, but have been largely outplayed so far.
